A New One For Me


How many times have I walked by a log thinking this was a fallen dried up leaf?  I wish I had taken a photo of it from a distance so that you could see how well this fungi is disguised. 

This one, the sunlight was upon it some showing the transparency of the fungi.

Spider webs never seem to come out as nice as they look in real life.  
Spider web photography must be a whole other science in itself.

If we huddle together, no one will see us.

wonderful images John do you know what the fungi is?

The first one looks like a clam.

I've found spider webs to be more photogenic when wet with dew and backlite.

i think you're on to something - fungi are really alien spies. :)

Fungus needs an update in it's promotional program. There are many fungi with an important role in the eco system yet they ware ignored.

These are all such nice shots. The one showing the transparency is stunning with its yellow light. Bud and I love to shoot spider webs. This one is really a nice one. genie
